Justices Return Documents To Lower Courts Over Dispute Of DACA

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court indicated that in California the federal courts had moved very fast in ordering the administration of Trump to disclose documents related to its decision to end a program that safeguard some 800,000 young, who are undocumented immigrants from deportation.

In an opinion which is unsigned, the justices instructed the lower courts to think over the arguments of administration on two threshold legal issues before demanding that the related documents be turned over. The administration resists that its decision to close the DACA program was within its lawful will and that the courts are in any event without jurisdiction to review the matter.

The opinion of the Supreme Court said “I any of those arguments accepted, it would likely to eliminate the need for the district court to observe a complete administrative record”.

Should those arguments be rejected by the court, the opinion said, they should consider needing fewer documents to be produced and let the administration to present arguments with regards to whether particular documents are privileged.

On Wednesday’s opinion, there were no noted disagreements from, which look like the product of compromise. That was in opposite to the first order of the Supreme Court in the case on Dec. 8, when the justices split 5 to 4 along ideological lines.
